Becoming a Familiar Pattern: Mild to Warm and Back to Mild
First Frost for Boston Burbs, First Snow for New England Both By Week's End

As Foliage Colors Pick Up, Amazing Weekend Weather

LKN_FALL_FOLIAGEHow long can this string of incredible fall weather last in New England?  Several more days appears to be the answer – our weekend is looking incredible and our exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast has been advertising a pattern change by the end of next week to much cooler air: that change is still predicted.  Until then, however, we enjoy a sunny weekend ahead punctuated only by a passing cold front late Saturday and Saturday night.  Sunshine and a light wind for our Friday means a quiet and pleasant weather day with sea breezes kicking up for our coastal communities during the afternoon and highs comfortably 70 to 75 degrees, regionwide.  A storm system cutting from the Great Lakes to Southern Canada on Saturday will prompt an increase in wind from the south and southwest, meaning warm air will be moving in with only some wispy, high-altitude clouds mixing in with our sunshine, allowing temperatures to reach 80 degrees in Southern New England Saturday afternoon, and well into the 70s even in the North Country where foliage now has reached moderate color, approaching a likely peak in the next two weeks, while areas farther south are just starting to see color showing up.  The passage of a cold front Saturday will spark a few late day showers in the North Country, then some scattered showers in Central and Southern New England Saturday evening and night, respectively, leaving cooler air but continued sunshine for Sunday with highs near 70 and 60s north.  Next week starts cool – 60s on Monday – but features one more big warmup before the weather pattern change to cooler times…and that one more warmup should see us in the 80s by next Wednesday, ahead of a cold front that marks the start of high temperatures closer to 60 degrees for next weekend.
